USF's Gregory has eye on Richmond job
By GREG AUMAN
Published January 12, 2008
TAMPA - USF offensive coordinator Greg Gregory said Friday that he has a "very strong interest" in the head-coaching vacancy at his alma mater, Richmond.
"I know I'm interested," said Gregory, who has been on USF's staff three seasons, one as coordinator. "It's my alma mater. It's my hometown. ... I don't know if they're interested in me. It takes two to tango."
Spiders coach Dave Clawson resigned Friday to become Tennessee's offensive coordinator.
Gregory, 50, played quarterback at Richmond, graduating in 1980, and was the Spiders' offensive coordinator in 2000 when they won the Atlantic 10 title.
"It's been one of my goals to be the head coach there," said Gregory, whose son Grant is USF's top backup quarterback. "If things went right, that could be the last stop for me there."
